In order to prepare for various product dissection labs, I disassembled a NERF blaster and recorded how it works. I later used the NERF blaster in several workshops.
I was asked to run a short workshop for at-risk youth on something related to engineering. I showed them how visualization and sketching are used by engineers to develop new ideas. The kids loved it, and I still have many of their drawings.
The C-Design lab presented a sketching workshop for people who wanted to know how to sketch new ideas like an engineer. Elkin Talborda and I presented the workshop and Dr. Karthik Ramani discussed how the workshop fits into the broader maker culture at Purdue.
I continuously taught workshops to 200-300 people at the Makers’ Faire in San Mateo, CA. The workshop was developed by the C-Design lab at Purdue, and showcased at the Faire.
